Welcome to The A Team, where High Score Reviews talk about the biggest characters in gaming; the best heroes, the worst villains, and the flat-out coolest and toughest characters video games have to offer.
In this entry, Ile is looking at Half-Life’s unlikely hero Gordon Freeman.
Gordon Freeman, Ph.D., is a theoretical physicist and the player character in Valve’s Half-Life series. The bespectacled and bearded MIT graduate goes in on the morning of a 16th of May for just another day sciencing stuff up at the now infamous Black Mesa Research Facility. He leaves work fighting his way through an alien invasion and defeating their overlord. Eventually he becomes a legendary fated saviour of mankind, crushing the brutal dictatorship of yet another alien invasion.
